      No problem. The SMTPD processes will discover that the connection
      is gone when they try to use it.

      ALL SMTPD daemons are waiting in flock or fcntl (for an exclusive
      lock on their PID file), except for the SMTPD daemons that are
      serving a client, and for the one SMTPD daemon that is waiting for
      a new client. On some platforms this is needed to prevent massive
      wakeup of multiple daemons when one client connects.
